SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. -- Gators are not uncommon to Florida.

They can be a little more surprising up close and personal when they're swimming in a nearby sewer, however.

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office responded to a unique kind of call Wednesday.

The Patrol Bureau along with Animal Services and Agricultural Unit worked together to wrangle a gator that worked its way into a nearby sewer system.

The unit along with deputies safely relocated the gator to a nearby creek.
